Summary:

FOIA requests to two separate agencies regarding a CIA report on terrorist threats resulted in two very different responses to the National Security Archive, the Seattle Times reported. The report, which described plans by a "Group of the Martyr Ebenezer Scrooge" to "sabotage the annual courier flight of the Government of the North Pole" imperiling "Prime Minister and Chief Courier S. Claus" was almost entirely blacked out in the CIA version but not in the version from the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library, the paper reported.
